Project-Portrait


With strong and steady winds, the Turkish west coast is ideal for wind energy. The Yuntdag wind farm supported by First Climate lies approximately 60 km north of Izmir. It comprises 17 wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 90 m and an output of 2 MW each. The annual production is sufficient to supply 80,000 households in the surrounding area with electricity.

Sustainable Development – The Sustainable Development Goals


While focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, all our projects also generate multiple co-benefits. These are supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By supporting this project you’ll contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Decent work and economic growth: During the construction of the wind park, 44 jobs were created; 12 of which are permanent positions in operation and maintenance of the wind turbines. Employees continuously receive training improving the base of qualified personnel in Turkey.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure: The project helps to improve the regional and national energy supply and to reduce Turkey’s dependency on fossil fuels. Furthermore,
it improves the local infrastructure – especially the road conditions.

Life on land: Generating sustainable electricity indirectly avoids, for example, emissions of nitrogen, soot and sulphur dioxide.
